The Aquasprouts Aquarium Aquaponic Garden converts a standard 10 gallon glass aquarium into a aquaponics system. It has a sleek, compact design that would improve the feel of any room in the house. The system itself is very easy to setup and requires little maintenance making it a great product for those with no knowledge of aquaponics who wish to learn. Aquasprouts Aquarium Aquaponic Garden would be a beautiful addition to anyones home but don't expect to grow much food. The grow bed is large enough to comfortably grow leafy greens, herbs, or smaller vegetables but this product is more of an educational tool or an art piece than a functional garden.
“This system turns a fish tank into an aquaponic garden, a perfect tool to explore how our natural environment works: fish waste fertilizes the plants, and the plants filter the water in the tank.”
- The New York Times

Self-Sustaining Community with Aquaponics
Regen Villages is creating a 15,500 square meter self-sustaining community that will house 100 families. The Regen eco-village is located in Amsterdam and the project is projected to be completed by 2018.
The Regen Village is “a regenerative system combining new technology and renewable energy powered homes, with organic food production right on the doorstep.” The houses are built inside a greenhouse “envelope” and are equipped with water collection systems, solar panels and are passively heated.
The community has a seasonal garden, biogas facility and aquaponics!
